May 2023 - Theme:

Mastering the High School Transcript

May 2023 - Theme Content

Part One - What is a high school transcript and why do you need one?

This month's theme is powerful!

The High School Transcript is one of our most popular signature workshops - learn exactly what we have taught over nearly two decades to tens of thousands of home educators on how to leverage the high school transcript to your child's advantage.  These methods work for any homeschooler, anywhere in the world, and they can work for you!

For decades, there has been a myth that certain entities don't take a homeschool transcript seriously, or that you don't need one. Because of these myths, many homeschool parents do not bother until they actually reach a situation where they discover that they do, indeed, need a transcript.  Then, they panic!

Everyone should understand what this document is - what it actually represents and that the high school transcript  is a permanent document that stays with you and can be recalled at any time in your adult life. (For clarification - it is criminal records that are sealed at age 18, not the high school transcript or diploma.)  Your child will especially need a transcript if they are NOT going to college.

You need this month's theme if:

  • Your child is 5th/6th grade level or higher
  • You want to avoid redundancy and/or costly mistakes
  • You are an unschooler, road schooler, or do any out of the box methodology
  • You want to learn how to build a STELLAR transcript, regardless of how out of the box your style is
  • You want to learn how to simplify education without dumbing it down
  • You are concerned about accountability (you will learn why a transcript is important to have)

No need to panic!

I will give you the exact information and tools that you need, even if you completely unschooled or don't think your child's education could be documented because you were so out of the box. I have worked with thousands of homeschoolers in countless situations, this will work for you!

In this month's theme, you will learn

  • What is a transcript and why you must have one 
  • How to create a transcript - what goes on it, what does not
  • How to leverage a homeschool transcript for lifelong planning
  • How to be prepared for college rule changes
  • How middle school ties to high school and beyond
  • Where to get ongoing help with all the other high school stuff

Dive in now and get this training - it will change your life, give you peace of mind, and help set your child up for success!

Part Two - "Mastering the High School Transcript" was LIVE on May 18, 2023.  Recording is below.

Our live speaker:  Dianne Kelley
The live session was May 18, 2023

There are always questions when people watch the workshop in part one.  And I always answer them, because I want you to have individualized, personal solutions to things that you might be confused about or aren't sure how to transcript.  Be sure to attend the LIVE session, even if your child is not at high school age yet (there is amazing information for those who are entering middle school) and I will help you customize a plan.  The LIVE part two workshop is where we get deeper into the actual transcript and planning form - the only two forms you will ever need for high school!! 

I will show you:

  • A sample transcript and blank transcript forms
  • A sample planner sheet and blank planner sheet

I will teach you how to use just these TWO forms to plan and execute for a perfect finish to high school and beyond.

How the Monthly Theme Works:

Each month in 2023 is a different theme, with video training to coordinate the theme.  We also feature a guest speaker who has experience in that area of teaching mastery.  The guest speaker joins us LIVE and ONLINE in a Zoom meeting, which is highly interactive and gives you the opportunity to ask questions and engage.  Anyone can attend the live session without membership, just register HERE.  After the live session, the replay is placed on the theme page.  Replays are for members only (choose the Free, Lite, or Premium membership).   Access to themed content is valid thru the end of the theme's month for Free and Lite members (Premium members have unlimited access).

Theme Content

Free and Lite members have access to the theme content thru the end of the theme month to study and learn. The theme consists of two parts.

Part One - Workshop Intro from The Simple Scholar (pre-recorded, access above on this page), then Part Two - a LIVE workshop (see above for live date & time!)

May's speaker is our own Dianne Kelley, who will teach you everything you must know about this important document - why you need one for every child, and the critical components that homeschoolers must get right! It will be a highly engaging and enlightening presentation. See above for more info on how to attend live.
